Last Minute Lasagna

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Alskann

I got this recipe from "Dinner and a Movie". It's not the same as traditional lasagna, but not bad for a quick midweek meal. I made just a couple changes, my family enjoyed it. Serve with a green salad and crusty bread and you're good to go! I used more sauce than the original recipe (I used a 4 lb. jar), but that is a personal preference. I also used frozen ravioli and adjusted the cooking time because my local store was out of the refrigerated.

Delicious and easy - the perfect meal for a Monday night! We skipped the spinach and olives and used twice the pasta sauce and mozzarella! Everyone loved it! Thanks for sharing this keeper!

  5. Repeat with another layer of ravioli, the remaining spinach, olives and mozzarella, and half the remaining sauce.
  6. Top with a final layer of ravioli and the remaining sauce (not all of the ravioli may be needed).
  7. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. I also topped it with more mozzarella.
